on the contrary, with volumetric shaders (shaders that take into account
the "amount" of matarial that is passed through) it is possible,
although not nessercerily the best method.

same as fur

An advanced shader system makes for much more easily customised shaders,
and means that not quite so much work needs to be done with textures, as
opposed to the current system. It also allows for people to experiment
with things like SSS, different noise functions, trippy effects, etc.
